Decades later, man accused of killing his family in Bethesda still missing

Forty-four years ago, State Department Foreign Service Officer William Bradford Bishop allegedly killed his mother, his wife, and his three sons in Bethesda. Then he vanished.

He was on the most wanted list for a few years, and there have been credible sightings in Italy, Sweden, and Switzerland. But every lead has turned up dry. [WUSA]

Taja Robinson has been told she must leave the home she shares at Snowden’s Ridge Apartments in Silver Spring with her two daughters and her infant grandson. The reason: violating a prohibition on smoking.

If she and her family are evicted, she said, they probably will have to go to a shelter. [Washington Post]

They found, lying on the ground nearby, the bodies of 21-year-old Ntombo Joel Bianda, of Alexandria, Va., and 19-year-old Ayanna Munne Maertens Griffin, of Germantown. [WTOP]
